Cute food time! Today I’m going back in time to make chocolate crackles. This was such a staple of childhood party food and they are still delicious!
You know the stupid part about this, I spent this entire time looking at the photos, looking at the crackles, eating the crackles wondering why they didn’t look like they did when I was a kid. It was driving my crazy. Today when I’m writing up the recipe it clicks: because when I was a kid we used coco pops not freaking rice bubbles.
-________________-‘’’’’’’’ Oh my god so stupid!! But at least they tasted really good anyway so I guess you can do either.
In a bowl, mix up the icing sugar,coconut and coco powder so they are well combined.
Add in 4 cups of rice bubbles (or coco pops) and mix that through too.
Set up a bunch of cup cake wrappers ready to go because you will need to be quick in the next steps.
On the stove top, melt the copha in a pot. You can cut it up first if you want but I never bother. Don’t boil it, it just needs to be liquid.
Once it’s totally melted, pour the copha into the rice bubble mixture and stir it through.
You want it to be really evenly coated.
Spoon the warm mix into the patty cakes so they each have a bite sized amount.
Leave them on the bench to cool to room temperature then pop in the fridge to set. If you’re in a hurry just put them in the freezer.
Once they’re cold they are ready to enjoy! I like to add sprinkles or a little extra dusting of cocoa powder or even a drizzle of chocolate to the tops.
Delicious and a fun walk down memory lane, even if my memory is apparently a little fuzzy on the exact recipe!
Let me know if you make them!
